I would recommend this as an alternative to the much more expensive OEM grip.
Ummagumma
As others have said, this is a well made grip and it fits tightly against the camera body.
Kenneth Depree
The poorly written instructions say that you can use one lithium battery but you can't.

This seemed like a handy and useful item. When it arrived, I was pleased with the appearence and feel. Then came the downfall...the item did NOT function with the battery magazine that was used to hold the Canon LP-E8 batteries. There are 2 positions, for 2 batteries. Supposedly, you can use one or two batteries. Neither position would work. At this point, I thought the grip was defective. Then I loaded the 6 AA batteries in their separate magazine and loaded into the grip. Now everything worked perfectly. The problem was with the magazine used for the LP-E8 batteries. I contacted Amazon, they instructed me on how to contact the seller, bestdealusa, which I do not believe is even in the U.S. Also, they have NO PHONE NUMBER. I contacted them, they asked for the order number which I provided, THEN THEY DID NOTHING...except passed the problem back to Amazon. They will not take any responsibility for the product. After troubleshooting...the problem turned out to be the contacts did not make contact with the rechargable batteries. Using a small needlenose pliers, I was able to CAREFULLY, and I re-emphasize CAREFULLY, move the contacts out enough to make contact with the batteries. The unit then functioned as it was supposed to....but with NO help from the seller at all. I am an electronics technician by trade. IF you have this product...IF you are experiencing the same problem, it may be able to easily repair it. If you are uncertain of doing it yourself, seek assistance. IT IS ONLY plastic and can easily be broken. I hope this might help.

Color Name: black Verified Purchase
Summary: viable off-brand alternative
Relevant experience: 4+ years using EOS line; 24+ years using SLRs; previous use of off-brand grip for XTi and motor grips for other SLRs

This grip performs exactly per the specification. It fits snugly against the camera body with no wiggling. The battery door closes tightly and securely. All buttons perform their assigned functions. I consider this a very acceptable alternative to the far more expensive canon part; no cons whatsoever. Another grip I purchased (similar model for an XTi from a different off-brand manufacturer) developed some cracking and shifting of the vinyl grip, but even that is minor in the big scheme of things... time will tell how this product performs, but I expect it should be stable for several years.

Based on this product's build quality, I would definitely consider purchasing other products from this manufacturer.

An added bonus for those photographers with large hands: this grip will likely help you since it increases your contact surface area quite a bit. I used to be able to put three fingers on one side of the tT2i, and now i can put all four on.

2012-Feb-28 followup. I am still using this, still completely satisfied with it. The electronics work fine, and it is still physically reliable. The vinyl hasn't cracked, and it looks much the same as it did nearly two years ago when I bought it. Great product.

2012-Sep-24 followup. I modded the battery door a bit to allow the AC adapter's power cord to pass through it for mounting the fake battery in the battery bay. It works in either position just fine. Still no issues with the grip -- entirely satisfied after > 15,000 shots and lots of handling.

My husband seems to have a great eye for things. He knows when something is good and when it's junk. Once again he proved himself to me with this battery grip. I wasn't really able to picture what it was that this item could do, until he put it on the camera.

This grip actually makes the camera feel lighter! We film videos a lot and some of them are outdoors and I am the camera person without the tripod! This camera was very heavy for me to hold after a few minutes, it was difficult to get a good grip on it. Once we added this grip, it made all the difference in the world! It gives you extra room at the bottom to hold the camera and the grip has a great feel to it!

Matt does a review on this battery grip. He shows you what it looks like on the Canon T3i and shows you some of the features of this grip.

... but looks can be deceiving.

I have had two other Rebels, each with a Canon OEM battery-grip, along with my 5D with a Canon OEM grip. I am comparing my experience using those two Rebels, with my recent experience using my T2i and a third-party grip. It still *looked* good throughout the entire ordeal. This third-party grip made my T2i malfunction, enough to call for repair information.

For no known reason at the time, my T2i began by acting strange. I had it up on my Gitzo, in the studio, shooting small ring-size items. The T2i has a feature to turn off the screen as your eye approaches the viewfinder. It got to where it would shut off the screen if even my hand was 12-18 inches (30.5-45.7 cm) away from the camera. And if I attempted to shutter it, it acted as if it were dead ... it would not release the shutter.

I stopped, moved to my work table, and attempted to trouble-shoot the problem. Until the very end, the camera had this battery-grip attached to it. The malfunctions continually compounded until I began thinking I got a lemon ... I did in ways, but it was NOT the T2i.

I then noticed that pressing the shutter with any exposure setting (e.g., M, Av, Tv, etc.) resulted in a functionality somewhere between *bulb* and *second curtain*... when I pressed the shutter, it stayed down, and required that I press it again to come up. But no matter how long I waited, it captured the correctly-exposed image only when I pressed the shutter the second time (i.e., to come back up), and it did that with or without the flash. It would also not fire in succession, but only single shots at a time.

I also reset the T2i, and placed fresh batteries in it ... all to no avail.
